Symposium on “RFID & Embedded Systems for Internet of Things” in the frame of the 2nd International Multidisciplinary Conference on Computer and Energy (SpliTech2017), technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc), will be held in Split on July 12-14, 2017.

The main goal of this symposium is to present and discuss recent advances in the area of the Internet of Things, where Radio Frequencies (RF) technologies and embedded systems are becoming research topics more and more interesting for both academia and industry. This symposium will provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss new applications, design problems, ideas, solutions, research and development results, experiences and work-in-progress activities in this important technological area. In particular, several ICT companies will be invited in order to report a real vision of the industry on challenges and solutions in the IoT sector. Meeting corners and exhibition session will be organized in cooperation with some companies such as STMicroelectronics, Impinj, CAENRFID, SensorID, FutureCitiesLab, and SofThings.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscripts for publication in a special issue of some international and indexed journals such as IEEE ACCESS and JCOMSS.

We cordially invite speakers who wish to present original papers on the following subjects, but not limited to these, associated with the following topics:

  • Software and Hardware Architectures for Embedded Systems
  • Mobile and Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing
  • Real-time and Reconfigurable Embedded Systems
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Cloud Computing in Embedded System Development
  • Solution and services supported by consumer devices
  • People-IoT Interactions
  • Cloud-based People-centric IoT Applications and Environments
  • Advanced RFID tags
  • Advanced RFID systems
  • New applications of RFID
  • RFID sensing
  • Chipless RFID
  • Near field communications
  • Smart and programmable tags
  • Smart environments and Internet of Things
  • Case studies, field trials, and industrial Applications

Finally, in conjunction with this symposium focused in IoT, an international competition will be organized in order to reward three best ideas in IoT field proposed and developed by young undergraduate students enrolled in an ICT engineering course. More details are reported on the conference website.
